O'Leary tackles the subject of Patriots cheating that had been conspicuously ignored by the mainstream press, but obviously has a latent interest level based on the national explosion of Patriot skepticism/disdain that has erupted in 2015.
It is a collection of actual and alleged misdeeds reported in some manner during the Belichick era. This is a self-funded/self-published book, so do not expect this section to contain new investigative content, just a compilation of what was published before.
The book is more successful in offering analysis and approaches to make some sense about the motivations and results of the Patriots cheating culture. Yes, a lot of it is conjecture -- but given Belichick's defiant secrecy firewall and philosophy of ''plausible deniability' -- it's becomes even more of a mystery, therefore conjecture becomes a useful analytic approach. Of particular interest is the 'follow the money' narrative of who benefits most from Patriots cheating -- that effectively ties together Goodell/Kraft/CBS (through Sumner Redstone). Don't expect that one to pop up on 60 Minutes!
There is no doubt that the Belichick era success in an outlier -- both is magnitude and longevity. You can't say that he has drafted well, retained players (other than the indispensable QB Brady), paid well or invented a hallmark football strategy. Unfortunately, Belichick's track record, personality and defiant business approach create doubts about his ethics and fair play. This book gives some good perspectives on the whole issue. Maybe someday we will be able to bridge out of speculation and understand what really happened.
